The KB Athletic Club (KBAC) represents the top level of coach / instructor lead training for skiers at Kissing Bridge. Available for beginner and advanced racers as young as 7, our team consists of skiers with varied racing / skiing goals and abilities.

With training offered 5 days a week, KBAC offers two program levels: (Race Team and Club Training Team) that are designed to meet the needs of its varied racers. Each program trains at KB’s Central Ski area and both are lead by USSA certified race coaches that are trained to help racers to meet their fullest potential.

Members bring to the team a variety of individual goals. The coaching staff makes every effort to design a training program that is fun and helps the skier to achieve his or her personal goals.

The following are the most common reasons for becoming a team member:

1. Train for NYSSRA and USSA Competition
New York State Ski Racing Association (NYSSRA) and the United States Ski
Association (USSA) racing bring the best racers in New York to compete at ski areas across the state. Qualifying racers move on to regional and national competition.

All racers must be affiliated with both NYSSRA and USSS to participate in races.

2. Skill Development
Some members choose not to compete at the regional and state level, but instead, join the team to develop their skills in one of the most successful training programs offered by Kissing Bridge. Many of our club racers go on to join the KBAC Race Team and may choose to do so at any time should the head coach agree that they are ready.

Attendance in all KBAC programs is not mandatory. Each racer and his or her parents should design a ski/training schedule in accordance with the available times that best balance school, home and other commitments. Team members often get together to form carpools.

The KBAC Race programs primarily use Twister for gate training; however, drills and free skiing may occur throughout the entire ski area. (Training locations will be chosen based on KB events and terrain availability).

Quad/Triple chairs service the racing terrain. All slopes are fully lit to provide night training. Our KBAC Team Room is located within steps of the Holly Quad at KB Central and is available for athletes and staff through the season.

KBAC Training Options:


The KBAC Race Team represents the final step in the Kissing Bridge junior development program. It is designed to take Bridge Buster graduates and other junior skiers who possess the necessary skills and guide them down the road to realizing their potential as skiers and racers. The Kissing Bridge Race Team has a long history of consistently producing the area’s best skiers. Several have won state championships; qualified for the US SKI TEAM; gone on to race in college; or have become instructors and coaches. The ultimate measure of success is seen in the development of friendships and a lifelong passion for skiing.


KBAC Race Team members may participate in a full schedule of races. On hill coaching is provided at each designated race. (Note: Travel arrangements, driving, and off-hill supervision are the joint responsibility of racer parents.)
